September Fun!

We have been having lots of fun in senior infants and first class since returning to school. We experimented with sounds in science. The balloon experiments were great fun! In maths we practised forming our numbers using marla, sand, lollipop sticks and match sticks. We also made number towers using cubes. We worked together to design and build using our construction toys. Have a look at some of our photos!

Féile Ceoil

Last night first class and the school band took part in Féile Ceoil in the Dean Crowe Hall. We sang songs, recited poems and played music. We were very excited and a little nervous, but we really enjoyed it!

Lá Glas

We really enjoyed “Lá Glas” today. 

Ms  Rigney’s 5th class read a novel as Gaeilge a few weeks ago. 

Mrs  Conway wrote a drama based on the book, and we performed it today. It was called  “An nathair agus Na Spéaclaí.” We really enjoyed it! It was great fun. 

Each class performed a “cluiche clós” or a “playground game.” 


Mr . Glennon : Caith agus Síos 

Ms . Dooley : A Gharda , A Gharda 

Mr . Keller : Chuaigh Mamó chun an tsiopa 

Ms . Egan & Mrs .Finn : Teidí  Béar      

Mrs.Dunne :  Ceann, gulalainn, glúin is cos

Mrs. O Connell : Isteach is amach trí na cloginí gorma

Ms . Quigley : Taobh le chéile 

Ms. Payne : Míonna na Bliana 

Mr . Dolan : Téigh abhaile 

                      Míonna na Bliana


Then our school band, “Banna Ceoil “,  played some traditional Irish tunes . They were excellent ! 

Five girls did some Irish dancing.

We would like to wish you all a very “Happy St . Patricks Day ”

“Beannachtaí na Féile Pádraig daoibh go léir” 

Slán libh!

By Ava Warby and Saoirse Murphy, 5th Class

St Patrick’s Week

Published by under 1st & 2nd Class

This week the children have been preparing for St Patrick’s Day. In groups, they made posters of the facts they have been learning about St Patrick. They painted the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow which we all decided a trip to Florida would suffice if we ever found it. The children in second class also did some work on persuasive language on topics such as ‘children should have a longer break time in school’. This was a statement we all agreed on and 2nd class had some very convincing points to make.
